• Ellen DeGeneres is described as one of the 'meanest' people in Hollywood
  • Portia de Rossi's partner is, reportedly, overly sensitive to animal jokes and refuses to read monologues she doesn't like
  • 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' will be airing again starting Monday after a two-week hiatus

Ellen DeGeneres is, undeniably, one of the most popular personalities in Hollywood today. Aside from being the cute and zany host of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the comedian is also known as the better half of Portia de Rossi. However, along with the fame, Ellen, also, had to face her fair share of issues and controversies.

Woman’s Day Australia, in its upcoming April 6, 2020 issue, reported that Ellen has been outed for her alleged meanness to her fans and employees. Former staff and fans of the American comedian-producer claimed that she is not a "fairy godmother" in real life despite her adorable and quirky persona in front of the cameras.

“Right now we all need a little kindness. You know, like Ellen DeGeneres always talks about! She’s also notoriously one of the meanest people alive,” Kevin T. Porter said on Twitter. The comedian, then, encouraged his followers to share the “most insane stories” they heard about Ellen being mean.

TV writer Benjamin Simeon claimed that Ellen has a "sensitive nose" and that she would not think twice to oblige someone to go home and take a shower if she thinks the person smells. “Every day she picks someone different to really hate. It’s not your fault, just suck it up for a day and she’ll be mean to someone else the next day,’” he added in a separate tweet.

Benjamin furthered he heard that Ellen DeGeneres is overly sensitive to jokes about animals and that she refused to read monologues she does not like. “When she's in a bad mood staff members were highly encouraged by upper management to go into her office and do bits to cheer her up,” he wrote.

“When I was 15 @TheEllenShow was doing a contest of fans making a bust of her and sending it to her. I worked so hard on this and even wrote her a letter. Weeks later she used it as a prop in a game and gave it away to a random person with $500 attached to the bottom,” Danielle Acevedo responded to Kevin’s tweet. “I worked so hard on this and even wrote her a letter. Weeks later she used it as a prop in a game and gave it away to a random person with $500 attached to the bottom,” she continued.

“My friend waited on her & she threw a plate of salmon in her face – it wasn’t what she ordered,” another Twitter user said. YouTube sensation Nikkie de Jager, who previously guested on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” also, shared that Ellen was not as nice as what she assumed she would be, adding the host did not even care to greet her before the show started.

Ellen DeGeneres has yet to comment on these harsh remarks.

Meanwhile, the 62-year-old television personality is said to make her comeback to the small screens on Monday. To recall, the entire crew and staff were forced to stop the production due to the coronavirus outbreak. The all-new episodes of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” will feature David Spade, Drew Brees, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and Jennifer Lopez.

“Since going into quarantine two weeks ago, I’ve been doing my show at home every day. But only for Portia,” Ellen DeGeneres stated in a statement, per USA Today. “Starting Monday, you’ll be able to see it, too, and I can’t wait,” she went on.
